Halloween Week Festivities

The week leading up to Halloween was filled with lots of fun activities, costumes, and treats. We kicked off the festivities with the Leos family as they graciously invited us along to experience Halloween Nights at the Dallas Zoo.

Later that night, Bunny came over to watch the kids so Josh and I could attend the Hubbards' annual Oktoberfest party. 

And we didn't let the rain stop us from playing beer pong waaaay past our bedtime. 

Sunday morning we headed to a superhero-themed birthday party for one of Ava's school friends. Gah....I just love that little Wonder Woman costume. 

And after that, it was time to head to their school's Fall Fiesta.

Rylan with Maestra Caro.

Ava's favorite activity was bracelet making.

Rylan's was chewing on his new yo-yo and finding rocks. Boys.

We also decorated the house...

And some pumpkins...

Ava's Halloween-themed lunch. The pretzel-stick owls may be my favorite.

I didn't want to send the kids to school in their actual Halloween costumes (lest they come home covered in something), so Ava wore her Elsa costume and Rylan went as a hipster. 

Rylan's teachers didn't think he was quite hipster enough, so they added a goatee and sent me a picture. I definitely laughed for a good 10 minutes in my office. I mean...

And after all that, we still had a day of costumes and trick-or-treating ahead.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
